michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st
-election, with their convention set to be gaveled to order in just one hour. first lady michele obama caps the opening night with a speech that will talk about the president's connection with and support for the middle class. a theme that the president himself anticipated earlier today at a rally in norfolk, virginia, where he drew a sharp contrast with his republican rival, mitt romney. >> i mean, think about it. a plan that says we're going to make middle-class families pay for another budget-busting, $250,000 tax cut, for people making $3 million a year or more, that's not really persuasive to most people. >> while the president was delivering that line, mitt romney's been up in vermont this afternoon, working on his powers of persuasion, fine tuning his debate preparations and leaving hatchet man paul ryan to do the dirty work on the campaign trail as today in battleground ohio. >> the biggest threat to medicare is obama care and one of the biggest threats to job creation is obama care. so for the sake of medicare, and for the sake of jobs, we are going to repeal and replace obama care. >> what a line.
. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. joining us now in our coverage all of this week, anderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our new poll shows why that case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. new numbers on mitt romney's convention bounds. john, what are the numbers? >> anderson, as the democrats open their convention tonight, let's look at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy, and the woman who stood by his side, vicki kennedy. >> meanwhile, the floor plan is completely different from the republican convention in tampa. sinc

. >> michelle obama delivered a rousing call for a second term as the president and first daughters looked on from the white house. we have a live report from charlotte, north carolina, minutes away. >> and apple hacked? a group claimed it stole users' information. what you need to know. >> and our own holly morris is spending the day with dr. oz. he's in d.c. to give us a checkup. as fox 5 morning news at 7 starts right now. >>> good morning to you. there is a live look outside and not a bad looking start to the day. it's wednesday, september 5th, 2012. i'm tony parkins. >> i'm allison seymour. happy you're with us today. showing you another live picture from the howard university college of medicine where, in just a short time now, a thousand d.c. residents will be getting free physicals thanks to dr. oz. won't to point out, though, if you're checking in and seeing this, all of today's participants are registered. they had to preregister so the physicals will only be given to those who are signed up. >> and that is a good thing. >> a good thing. >> and won't to go to tucker barnes who ha
-- here is a picture of the president and his daughters watching michelle obama from the white house last night. you can see the tweet that his campaign sent out last night. next call comes from michigan, independent line. caller: i think they should be the first ladies, supportive from the outside. i really don't feel that this buildup is necessary. just bring out the president and let him give his pitch and let's get on with the show. some of the stuff that she said makes no sense to me. with all the dinners and he is a way so much, i would have liked to of heard from melia and sasha and their impressions of their dead. how their time in washington has been as compared to chicago and how they are getting along in school and if they're looking forward to a second term. she looked very pretty and she is made up and she is dressed but do we need this? host: on your screen is a live picture of the inside of the time warner cable arena in charlotte at the democratic national convention and it convenes again tonight at 5:00 p.m. bill clinton will be the closer tonight to deliver the nominati
years ago. also speaking tonight, first lady michelle obama. her job, reach out to women voters of both parties. cnn's edlavendera has a closer look. but, first, dana bash, what are the main priorities that democrats will be pushing tonight? >> reporter: well, democratic officials say the main priority is to remind people that this just isn't just about whether or not they should fire or hire again president obama. it's that it's going to be a choice. and this is really if you talk to any strategist of any party kind of the way you run an incumbent's re-election campaign. that it is a choice between the president and mitt romney. so they'll try to what they say is crystallize that choice between the two men. and they're also going to try to emphasize the fact that as president obama has been doing for months that they believe that the democratic party is the party for the middle class. and also talk about, they say, the accomplishments that they feel that the president hasn't gotten enough credit for, bailing out the auto industry. they believe the health care bill. they'll talk about t
michelle obama of course, and a great keynote speech from julian castro. we'll give you our unique take on it, and you'll be able to participate by way of social media. give us run down on how that works. >> cenk: i will. as you saw in the republican convention because i'm positive you all were watching, we have a twitter feed that goes up on the screen, and we have a whole range of different publics that we look in on, mainstream media pundits, conservatives liberals comedians and they're oftentimes incredibly funny including, when everyone is talking about invisible obama. at the end of the republican national convention, i'll have a fact on that that you'll love, and of course president obama as well here tweeting. in fact, the biggest tweet of the republican national convention was ironically from president obama. it was about invisible obama. we'll get to that in a bit. we'll go to l.a. to check in on social media. we'll go to convention live to check in. michael shure and david shuster and we'll go to some of the speeches that the vice president mentioned and cal penn will be chec
to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look
and his wife, michele obama. >> michele was unbelievable. >> and joe biden. >> john kerry. >> john kerry did well, biden did well, clinton was incredible, michele obama was incredible. but you know, it -- >> it's a high bar to clear for the guy. >> and also, though, if you want to compare it to tampa, i mean, obviously so much -- >> they had to hold everyone back. >> so much better than everybody at tampa. we're not going to even -- but as far as substance goes, i agree. >> beautiful. >> he said nothing, but he said nothing so much better than mitt romney said nothing. >> yeah. >> which i was talking -- >> that's it. >> let's be clear, we were talking about how high the bar was for obama. talk about mitt romney, it's a low bar for mitt romney to clear that bar. he was somewhere in between those things. i thought the first two-thirds of the speech, and many people have said this, it did feel like a state of the union speech. little bit of a laundry list and very -- not just as mark said, not only did he say nothing new, he said nothing bold and he said nothing very specific. you know, one

culminated with first lady michelle obama. these are some highlights. >> over the past few years as first lady, i had the extraordinary privilege of traveling all across this country. and everywhere i have gone in the people i have met in the stories i've heard, i have seen the very best of the american spirit. i have seen it in the incredible kindness and warmth people have shown me and my family, especially our girls. i've seen it in teachers in the near bankrupt school district who vowed to keep teaching without pay. i've seen it in people who become heroes at a moment's notice, diving into harm's way to save others, flying across the country to put out a fire, driving for hours to bail out a flooded town. and i've seen it in our men and women in uniform and our pratt military families. --proud military families. and wounded warriors who tell me they're not just going to walk, but are going to run and run marathons. in the young man blinded by a bomb in afghanistan who said simply, "i'd give my eyes 100 times again to have the chance to do what i have done and what i still do." every d
political prize is going to be in 2012 and northern virginia is the key which is why we have michelle obama here in fredericksburg here today. this presidential campaign has been focused on the economic challenges took a turn to the foreign policy and the turmoil in the middle east. this is what michelle obama had to say. >> i want to say how truly heart-broken barack and i are about the horrific tragedy that occurred earlier this week in libya. i'm not sure if everyone is aware. but our hearts and prayers are with the families of those who gave their lives serving our country. >> reporter: now, mitt romney had his rally in the heart of fairfax today. his comments about the unrest in et middle east yesterday caused some controversy. so today he tried to turn the focus back to the economy. >> mitt romney! >> reporter: a crowd of more than 2,000 cheered mitt romney's arrival in fairfax and he began by acknowledging the attack on the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. >> we're thinking about their families and those that they left behind. what a tragedy to lose such a wonderful -- >> repor
will be capped off by michele obama. david walker joins because he the incident last week in tampa. former u.s. general. >> we are in a 70 trillion-dollar hole. we have unfunded pensions and health care. unfunded social security, unfunded medicare. the range of other commitments and contingencies. it is over $70 trillion. neil: which party has the better plan to do that? >> it will be interesting to see how barack obama embraces simpson-bowles or that he hasn't yet, but if he does, that could be a game changer. there is one serious problem in one moderate problem. the series problem is that if you don't effectively deal with health care costs, you don't solve the problem. neil: who better than kathleen sebelius to help you. >> he is a happy beneficiary to bring happy quality health care to every senior citizen. president obama is building on that legacy. by bringing quality and secure health care to every american. obamacare is a badge of honor. because no matter who you are, what stage of life you are in, this law is a good thing. first, if you already have insurance that you like, you can
to expectations. >> chenk, if we were going to base the election on twitter then the winner would be michelle obama. the most tweets her minute. she had 28,000 tweets per minute during we are speech, mitt romney in comparison was 14,000 tweets per minute. bill clinton did go up against football. we have to take that into consideration. we haven't even heard joe biden or president obama speak so far and already we're at 6.3 million tweets, far surpassing where the republican national convention was. what do we expect from obama tonight. >> i think it's going to be bigger than all of this, although they are going up against the music video awards on mtv. i wouldn't want to stack him against justin bieber. we saw obama for america had their first hash tag today strangely not highjacked. >> they've been highjacked by progressives. the obama campaign bought their first hash tag not highjacked. >> we saw that trending today bill clinton talking about that. i think what's been really interesting is new numbers from a pew study that came out today. how are we going to translate this, 16% have changed
, talking about what we have done, where we are going and getting out to vote. you saw both michelle obama and the former president bill clinton speak very directly, we forget, this is about getting people out there, the yard signs don't vote, people vote. people vote with or without i.d.s depending on the state they are in. there's a lot of issues raised in conjunction with that, but it was a contrast to tampa which felt at times more like a conference or board presentation. there was a lot of clear sort of detail about why they don't like president obama but there wasn't necessarily as much a call to arms of saying, mitt romney is your man. on joy's point when they totaled up the number of words used, the word obama was used more than romney at both conventions. that's not necessarily bad for the republicans because they have to both convince the country to fire one guy and hire another. >> right. if you don't vote for president obama, the only alternative is, of course, governor romney. leslie, let me ask you this, one could say i disagree with the party, i don't like what was said, i t
michele obama to that list now. >> oh, my gosh. the reaction from that speech has been -- i mean i have heard from people from all walks of life who were completely moved by that speech and brought to tears. i don't even think they expected it to be that good. she was excellent. >> yeah. >> it was her execution that just brought it home. >> her speech was tough. she delivered it well. >> hours before last night's big speeches there was an awkward and unexpected moment on the convention floor, amid criticism from mitt romney, and other top republicans, democrats held a last-minute vote to reinsert the word "god" into the party platform and to declare jerusalem the capital of israel. >> the matter requires a two-thirds vote in the affirmative. all those delegates in favor, say aye. all those delegates opposed say no. >> in the opinion of the -- let me do that again. all of those delegates in favor, say aye. >> aye. >> all those delegates opposed say no. >> no. >> i, um, i guess -- you got to let them do what they're going to do. >> i'll do that one more time. all those delegates in favor,
, michelle obama, and the mayor of san antonio are two of the featured speakers at the time warner cable a real not in an uptown charlotte. 400 alternates and 5900 delegates will be at the convention. 50% of the democratic delegates are women. here is the front page of "of the charlotte observer" this morning. -- first page -- front page of "the charlotte observer" this morning. the convention kicks off in at 5:00 p.m. we will go over the schedule in just a few minutes. "voters in the second term undeserved, country is worse off." a belief that president obama does not deserve election according to a new poll. voters say that the nation is in worse condition now than it was in 2008. they say that obama does not deserve reelection. that is the top line of this poll. that seems to be a constant theme in this morning's papers. are you better off? that is the question this morning for the first section of "of the washington journal." are you better off than you were four years ago? for democrats, 202-737-0001. for republicans, 202-737-0002. for independents, 202-628-0205. please allow 30 day
for barack obama right now. one is as michelle was just saying look at his popularity right now. part of that is a product of how the republicans have treated bill and hillary clinton for the past few years. where they treated them for villains for 15 years. and started in 2008 saying he was the good democrat and now barack obama is the bad one. and bill says the policies he wants to implement on tax rates for rich, that's what clinton enacted in 1993. he can say i did that. every single republican in the house, every republican in the senate in 1993 said exactly what every single republican today is saying. and look what happened in the 1990s. look how the deficits came down. didn't harm the economy to have those higher tax rates. that's all barack obama wants to go back to now. and the other reason is simply there's a contrast here between what happened under bill clinton and under george w. bush. it's hard for barack obama to be explicit about saying that. when he invokes bush, it's easy for the republicans to say he's blaming the predecessor. that doesn't apply to clinton. >> mich
convention was a never-ending train of friends of the report. to name just a few-- first lady michelle obama. san antonio mayor julian castro. new york mayor corey booker. education secretary arne duncan. singer/songwriter james taylor. even the symbol of our country, the american flag. how could you betray me like that, flagworth. i should string you up on a pole. ( laughter ) folks, all of these people were on my show and, therefore, received the coveted colbert bump. and the success, the success of the dem convention can mean only one thing-- the bump has gone rogue. ( laughter ) i've lost control of it. now, folks, i prayed this day would never come, but evidently, even god was powerless to stop the bump. probably because he's never gotten it. come on my show, mr. god! ( cheers and applause ) now, answer my calls. never answers. now i know what you're thinking, stephen, you created the bump. surely you can take it away from these democrats. no, it's not that simple. you see, all bumps operate on the same frequency. it's just like wifi-- only you can't tuz to watch porn at starbucks.
over town. we just heard a variety of the democrats bad mouthing mitt romney. last night michele obama did not mention mitt romney's name. the first half of her speech could have been from a conservative because it is personal responsibility and the second half about her husband and why shoohe should have the key to camp david four more years. >> so many people had a hand in our success. from the teachers who inspired us and the janitors who kept our school clean. barack refused to lits lis to folks who told him to leave health reform another day and another president. he didn't care whether it was easy to do politically. that's not how he was raised and i hear the determination in his voice he tells me. you will not believe what folks are going through. it is not right. we have to work to fix this and we have so much more to do. >> brian: i think she was strong. she was poise and delivered a great message and the delivers the young family growing nup the white house and needs more time. i thought one thing everybody talked about the mayor of san antonio. julian castro and i think when
